Jupiter Elementary School

Summary:

Jupiter Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 832 students in grades PK-5 in Jupiter, Florida, which is part of the Palm Beach School District. While the school has a diverse student population with a majority Hispanic enrollment, it faces some challenges compared to nearby schools, including higher chronic absenteeism rates and lower test scores, particularly in English Language Arts.

Jupiter Elementary's chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 21.2% to 30.1%, is significantly higher than the 9.3% to 24.2% rates at nearby schools like Jupiter Farms Elementary School and Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School. Additionally, the school's test scores, especially in 3rd grade English Language Arts where only 36% of students scored proficient or better compared to 54-88% at nearby schools, lag behind its neighbors. However, Jupiter Elementary performs better in 5th grade Science, with 62% of students scoring proficient or better, compared to the district and state average of 51%.

Despite these challenges, Jupiter Elementary is making progress, with its SchoolDigger ranking increasing from 2 stars to 3 stars in recent years. The school also has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 68.75% to 82.44%, compared to 2.03% to 56.02% at nearby schools. Additionally, Jupiter Elementary spends more per student ($15,050 in 2022-2023) than the surrounding schools, which range from $9,096 to $25,176 per student. This suggests that the school may need to focus on factors beyond just funding, such as student engagement, teacher quality, and targeted interventions, to address its performance challenges and better serve its diverse student population.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
